Eddy Current Compensation
 
Eliminate Gibb's artifact (Border ringing) for sharp images. Means of reducing the influence of eddy currents on pulsed gradient fields by employing an electrical preemphasis in the gradient amplifiers. Usually multiple time constants have to be used to correct for eddy current effects in various structures of the MR system such as the cryoshields and RF-shields.

Quick Overview

Artifact Information
NAME Eddy current
DESCRIPTION Image distortion
REASON Induced by changes in a magnetic field
HELP Eddy current compensation, shielding

Eddy currents can cause artifacts in images and may seriously degrade overall magnet performance.


Image Guidance
Common uses to reduce the influence of eddy currents on gradient fields are eddy current compensation and shielded gradient coils (active or passive). If persistent, it must be addressed by a service representative to verify the magnet performance.

Electric currents induced in a conductor by a changing magnetic field or by motion of the conductor through a magnetic field.
One of the sources of concern about a potential hazard to subjects in very high magnetic fields or rapidly varying gradient or main magnetic fields. Can be a practical problem in the cryostat of superconducting magnets. Eddy currents can cause artifacts in images and may seriously degrade overall magnet performance. Common means to reduce the influence of eddy currents on gradient fields are eddy current compensation and shielded gradient coils (active or passive). See also Eddy Current Compensation.

An image artifact is a structure not normally present but visible as a result of a limitation or malfunction in the hardware or software of the MRI device, or in other cases a consequence of environmental influences as heat or humidity or it can be caused by the human body (blood flow, implants etc.). The knowledge of MRI artifacts (brit. artefacts) and noise producing factors is important for continuing maintenance of high image quality. Artifacts may be very noticeable or just a few pixels out of balance but can give confusing artifactual appearances with pathology that may be misdiagnosed.
Changes in patient position, different pulse sequences, metallic artifacts, or other imaging variables can cause image distortions, which can be reduced by the operator; artifacts due to the MR system may require a service engineer.
Many types of artifacts may occur in magnetic resonance imaging. Artifacts in magnetic resonance imaging are typically classified as to their basic principles, e.g.:
Physiologic (motion, flow)
Hardware (electromagnetic spikes, ringing)
Inherent physics (chemical shift, susceptibility, metal)

Several techniques are developed to reduce these artifacts (e.g. respiratory compensation, cardiac gating, eddy current compensation) but sometimes these effects can also be exploited, e.g. for flow measurements.
